There are fresh doubts that stressed-out singing sensation Susan Boyle will be able to appear in the Britain’s Got Talent live tour when it hits Belfast this summer.

Boyle pulled out of the third date of the show yesterday after she was advised to rest.

The 48-year-old Scottish singer was due on stage for a matinee and evening show at the Manchester Evening News Arena but concert goers were greeted at the venue with notices announcing she would not be performing.

There had been fears that the singer would not perform at the tour debut up until just before the show on Friday.

The church volunteer, who shot to worldwide fame on the ITV1 programme, sang in the second half of the Birmingham show and again in Sheffield, where she received standing ovations.

The singer was admitted to the Priory clinic after coming second to dance troupe Diversity in the TV contest but left five days later.

Boyle is due to appear at the Odyssey Arena on July 1.

A spokesperson for Boyle said last night: “Following three sensational performances, Susan Boyle has been advised to rest.

“She sends her sincere apologies to her fans for not appearing in Manchester.”
